I think having kids just makes you want to do things to help people. You have children, and you see how fragile and innocent and helpless they are when they first start out.

Lisa Marie Presley
I used to get a sort of sociophobia, and I still get it sometimes these days when I'm in a confined space with too many people. It's not like I freak out or anything, it's just that I'm far more comfortable in my own company sometimes than being surrounded by one thousand strangers.
